Comment (by david cournapeau):

 Ok, I modify the patch, which uses now a f function (I added two,
 inplace_fast_clip and fast_clip. I only use inplace_fast_clip for now).

 I am still unsure about how to handle mix case types: all is handled using
 PyArray_ConvertToCommonType, and I always cast the output array to the
 type asked by the called.

 Also, if I call clip with an out argument which is the same then the input
 argument, the current clip creates a new array, whereas I try hard not to.
 I don't know which is is considered correct...

 I would say the main problem of the current implementation is that all the
 array is copied if not contiguous, instead of buffers, but I don't know
 what's the best way to do that.
